"Her Mother like her, was an only child", Yet she goes to her grandmothers house to wait for her aunt to arrive, leaves 24 hours later for no good reason, well before the aunt arrives.
Just one of several glaring inconsistencies.

A fresh and captivating re-telling of a much loved fable.
From the very start you are seductively drawn in to Steven Zelko's intrinsic play on words, attention to detail and beautiful construction of sentences.
Without giving too much away this consistently witty, smart and charming piece drops you into the Life of Skye a corporate hotty with a boyfriend of the same tones. Everything is going swell for her and then her Grandmother goes and dies on her. Skye's mum sends her out to the country to look after Grandma's cottage, whilst waiting for another relative to rock up. All quite simply put by me but it's another thing for Skye. Every turn is fraught with trails and tribulations to say the least..
The ending, how shall I put it?.... it is like a really good vanilla bean ice-cream atop a piece of warmed through devil's food cake...
